You will get a chance to meet some great dignitaries. I personally met Salman Khurshid and got chance to hear Ravishanker Prasad. The bhaiya is available all the time to provide you with tea.
Its only good for 1st and 2nd years. Khan Market is near to hang out but that is some what costly so all interns could not afford it.
I was very much motivated by this internship. Coming and going you can easily see some cabinet ministers which motivated me a lot.
Discipline is something which I learnt from there.
